How to Reach Uttarakhand

How to get there by Air

There are a couple of domestic airports in Uttarakhand: Dehradun’s Jolly Grant Airport, Pantnagar airport and Pithoragarh’s Naini Saini Airport. However, at the best of times, flights to all these airports are highly erratic, so it may be best to check if flights are operational.

How to get there by Rail

More than three-fourths of Uttarakhand lies in the mountains, consequently, the railway network is fairly meager. Important junctions include Dehradun, Haridwar, Rishikesh, Nainital, Kotdwar, Kathgodam, Pauri and Udham Singh Nagar- nearly all of them lying in the southern and south-western districts of the state. Train connections to other cities in northern India, including Delhi, Lucknow and Varanasi, are frequent, and from these towns regular buses travel northward to other parts of Uttarakhand.

How to get there by Road

Technically, all of Uttarakhand is connected by road to the rest of north India- but the state of a road is often suspected. Hill roads tend to be neglected, and potholes, poor surfaces and landslides are common, especially in the more remote areas. Through much of the state, however, roads are the only means of getting around, so you’d better reconcile yourself to that fact. Major towns- including all the district headquarters- have bus connections to other towns and villages in the state, and to neighbouring states as well.
